Rural Living Month Webinars: Queso Presto! (online)

April 23, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Join Eric Rector, a local cheesemaker from Monroe Cheese Studio, to learn how to turn a liquid into a solid. Cheesemaking takes a lot of time: usually, a day of work just to get the initial stage of fresh cheese and then years of aging. In this workshop, Eric will summarize 10,000 years of cheese making and show you how to make a quick and tasty cheese in an effort to describe milk’s leap toward immortality.

Rural Living Month, formerly known as Rural Living Day, is an annual event in April hosted by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Waldo County Extension Association. During the four-week event, a variety of workshops will be offered by Extension staff and community experts on topics ranging from gardening with youth to cheesemaking, invasive forest pests, and livestock management. This year the event will consist of four virtual workshops on the first four Saturdays in April. There is a $10 fee per workshop. Scholarships are available, call the Waldo County Cooperative Extension office at 207.342.5971.

Proceeds from this year’s event will support the WCEA post-secondary education scholarship for Waldo County residents. For more information on the WCEA scholarship visit
